Dec. 22 (Bloomberg) -- While his football days are drawing to a close, Tiki Barber has carved out an active role in philanthropy.

The 31-year-old New York Giants running back, who plans to retire from the National Football League at the end of this season, puts a lot of his time and celebrity into charity events. In the past four weeks he has hosted a ceremony honoring leaders in New York City tourism, presented a humanitarian award to his friend, Richard Mina, chief executive officer of Foot Locker's U.S. division, and helped auction art to benefit Save the Children."
